The Intern Who Became a Mill Manager

September 24, 2019

Tim Wight remembers how excited he was to start work as an engineering intern at our Port Huron Mill in Michigan in 1991. Today, as the mill’s general manager, his passion for the work hasn’t changed.

“Ultimately, interns today are looking for the same things I was,” Wight says. “They want to apply classroom learning to the real world, develop and grow as an engineer, and feel like they’ve brought some value to the company that hired them.”

Thanks to Wight, and others like him at Domtar, interns have a wide range of opportunities that can help shape their careers or even set them on a path that might one day lead to a mill manager position.
